Erase Your Spider Veins Quickly & Painlessly

Sclerotherapy and surgery are the two most common treatments for eliminating veins. However, many patients have blood vessels that are just too small for either technique to be practical or effective. Advanced Laser Clinics uses a diode laser to treat “spider” veins ranging in size from 0.4 to 1 mm. Clinical studies have shown that veins of this size respond well to laser treatments.

During treatment, the diode laser targets oxyhemoglobin which absorbs the laser’s energy. The oxyhemoglobin then transfers the heat generated from the laser’s energy to the vascular wall thereby destroying the vein. Surrounding tissue is unaffected, and the treatment poses no downtime. The only side effect is a slight bruising around the treatment site which dissipates relatively quickly following treatment.
